    Osram bulbs are quite good if you want a brighter light, or the obvoius HID root - really all depends on how much you want to spend.

    In my experience the extra bright halogen bulbs are not worth the extra dosh. The packaging often says "100%" brighter, but in reality the difference is nothing like that amount. If you want a significant improvement and a whiter light, then HID is pretty much the only option.
